dying spruce trees

Asked July 2, 2013, 9:29 AM EDT

We have several spruce trees that have died in the last 6 months and several more showing sings of dying. Some neighbors also have had some dye. I've heard that KS has a "bug" this is the cause. Has this migrated to ND and IF so, is there something we can do to prevent more trees from dying. I do have pictures of some of the trees and could email.
